The Middle East and North Africa (MENA) Scholarship Programme (MSP) offers scholarships to professionals from ten countries. Its goal is to deliver a contribution to the sustainable democratic transition of the Arabic region via capacity building for mid-career professionals from this region, working in government, NGO's or private sector. The scholarships can be used for short courses, with duration up to 90 days, in the Netherlands. More information on the programme.
The programme strives to allocate 50% of the budget to female candidates. The programme is funded by the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs and is monitored by Nuffic.
The funding application and nomination process for the MSP programme is partially executed by the Dutch institution.
The scholarship value depends on the duration of your programme at the University of Twente as well as on the in-house or external components. Please note that the scholarship does not cover all the costs of the study trajectory. It is not a full fellowship.
